    Get yourself a multi-meter so you can check what charge is in the batteries, helps trouble-shoot

    Have you a second mod that you can use to test the batteries to see if they are in fact dead?

    You need to check the voltage in the batteries with a multimeter to see if there are charged. If they are then the mod is at fault. Try as well cleaning the battery contacts in the mod.

    Dont suppose you have one of those cheapo LED flash lights? Some of them will take an 18650 when you remove the plastic cartridge that carry the AA batteries. No danger, the voltage is the same.

    Does the mod have a usb port for charging and if so, have you tried charging the batteries in the mod. Sometimes just plugging the usb cable in resets the mod, or at least it used to in my old istick 50.

    They say you learn something every day, this was it for me today. Cheers! I'll never have to buy AAA's again.
